Florida State's Jimbo Fisher "No. 1 Name" To Replace Les Miles At LSU, If He's Out

Les Miles is coaching for his job over the next two weeks, according to a report by Scott Rabalais of The Advocate

Miles, 62, has been at LSU since 2005. He's won two SEC championships and a national title, compiling a 110-31 record. The Tigers have failed to live up to expectations in recent seasons, though. This year, they were No. 2 in the first College Football Playoff rankings but have since lost back-to-back games. 

Who would LSU like to replace Miles with if he's indeed out after this season? Florida State's Jimbo Fisher, who was LSU's offensive coordinator from 2000-06.

If LSU was to part ways with Les Miles who would they hire?

While it's all speculation at this point, we'd certainly be OK with a LSU/Jimbo vs. Alabama/Saban rivalry in the SEC West.
